Chemistry Day at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum is right around the corner! As in the past this well attended annual event (~ 1000 children and adults) is held in conjunction with National Chemistry Week (NCW). The 2018 theme is Chemistry is out of this world. The Fall 2018 Kalamazoo Valley Museum publication, museON, page 14, had an enthusiastic article about the impact which KACS members have had on our community over many years, with positive mention of this outreach event which has continued for the past 31 years.

We still need a lot of helping hands from our members for this much anticipated event!

We would love to hear that you are interested in volunteering; if you are not sure what you might want to present we have a list of activity suggestions from prior years, or you may want to work alongside someone else as a "helper" at a table. Please join the few who have responded to date and contact our NCW coordinator Lydia Hines - advanced planning makes the event more pleasurable.
